Create Mystery

A path into my tiny back garden, below.

 A coop, conservatory, flagstone terraces & etc. are slipped with precision into their setting.

Who wants to see everything at once?  Discovery & delight are fundamentals of garden mystery.
Plants are allowed to be themselves.  Mostly.  Camellias, azaleas, hydrangeas, tea olive, roses, boxwood, itea, aucuba, akebia, daphne.  Something is blooming every day, all year.  Now, it's hydrangeas & crape myrtles.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
pics taken last week in my garden.  The entire lot is a mere 8500sq. ft.  Paths are integral to creating mystery in my garden.

Plants know how to look their best; they tend to need minimal, if any pruning.

Tara, I would love it if you would take some photos of your garden from a distance. I'd love to see what it looks like from across the street, down the cup-de-sac, etc. Thanks, Barry

I agree. I also like that paths create not only mystery but the dip into shade and then into light once metaphors in the Italian garden, now simply a lovely change of pace.
